Water Sports


The Black Dog Tall Ships

The experience available aboard the vessels Shenandoah and Alabama nourishes that spirit in a way that is remarkable to behold. Youngsters learn their maritime heritage and become part of the crew. With no modern conveniences, they return to another time through the quiet sails, coal-fired stove, and hand water pumps.
